This temple has several must-see highlights. The Ubosot(ordination hall) is surrounded by the largest lotus petals in the world.

The upper floor of the museum houses the first and largest silver holy Buddha image of the country, which was created in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of His Majesty the King’s accession to the throne. Within the temple compound, there are depictions of heaven and hell, a Thai deity paradise, a Chinese deity paradise, and a huge statue of KuanIm, a Chinese female goddess.
